No special marketing, no support, just BTS’ Kim Seokjin making history for 2021 and 2022.

His song “Super Tuna” hits one month and makes history on TikTok and YouTube. The song remains on the Videos Trending Worldwide Music Category on YouTube. #SuperTuna still trends on TikTok, with over 240.8 million views. It also continues to trend under the Music category on Twitter.
On Twitter, World Music Awards reported that Jin is the first Korean soloist to have two Billboard Hot Trending Songs Chart songs. The Jirisan theme song Yours peaked at number 8 while Super Tuna went up to number 9.
Even when at rest, BTS continues to make history. They’ve been on vacation since December 6, 2021. With the Covid Omicron variant news, fans are worried about the boys’ health and how it will affect their activities. Good news, BigHit Music announced that for now, there’d be no changes for their concert in Seoul in March.
